Book Traveling Thursdays: Bookish Siblings


Hello, welcome back to another Book Traveling 168709Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.

This week’s theme is “National Siblings Day is a few days away. Choose a book that has your favorite bookish siblings“. One of my favorite pair of siblings it’s the Lightwoods, from The Mortal Instruments. Izzy and Alec are just amazing, and Jace too, because he’s part of the siblinghood there 😉 .

Original COver:

I’m not a huge fan of this cover, but I did get used to it. I honestly think Sebastian looks a bit weird…



Both Spanish and Portuguese editions share the same cover as the original. I do have to say that I’m not a huge fan of the font they used in the portuguese edition though.

Favorite COVER(s):


I love the new editions, the UK and the US ones, though I still love the UK one a tiny bit more. They’re so pretty.



These are my least favorites (in order): Italian, German, Serbian, Polish. The Italian cover is not ugly, it just doesn’t have a thing to do with Shadowhunters. The German is not really my thing, it looks like High Fantasy from the 80’s. The Serbian edition looks like a cheap version of the original cover. And the Polish… well… what even? Is that Clary?

    My post will be up later, but I picked the Lightwoods as well, but focus on City of Bones for my book covers. I’ve seen that German cover in your least favourite section many times for all of the books. It just doesn’t make sense for the series or this book.

    I almost picked them too this week 🙂 I think I might like them more in the tv show but they were still great in the books. Nice choice!

    Polish is in action again 😛
    This time, I have no intention of defending it. The first time I’ve seen it on a bookshelf it took me a while to realize what book it is.
    although, the whole series looks quite good on the shelf, but I do prefer the original covers

    When I saw this week’s theme I immediately thought about Izzy and Alec, they are probably my favorite siblings in YA. I think that the fact that Izzy is my girl crush has something to do with it haha but still they’re amazing !

    To be honest I don’t really like any of the covers that much but I rather the red one of any of the others! The Lightwoods are a great family 🙂
